P5+1 to Propose Meeting Dates to Iran – Al-Monitor

Russia Still Pushing for ‘Generous’ Package for Iran

Laura Rozen of Al-Monitor’s The Back Channel reports today that P5+1 countries have decided to propose to Iran dates for holding a new round of nuclear talks as early as this month. Diplomatic sources have told Al-Monitor, however, that a meeting is not expected to materialize before January.

Al-Monitor also reports that Russia has not yet signed off on the proposed package to be offered to Iran, expected to be a modestly updated version of the one presented in the Baghdad conference last May. The U.S., Britain, France, Germany and China have all reportedly agreed on the details of the new package.

Russia apparently wants a “more revamped, generous package.”
